Adjusting the Tone and Color of a Video Clip in Lightroom

Photofocus (old site)

Let’s continue our look at working with video in Lightroom.  In part 1 we explored Uses for Video, in part 2 Hard Drive Requirements for Video, and in part 3 Playing and Trimming Video.  Now let’s talk about adjusting tone and color of video clips.

Adjusting Tone and Color

Oftentimes, video is a medium that lacks contrast. This is because we tend to shoot it with protecting the highlights and the shadows. So in post, you could put more of that back in. After all, it’s easier to add contrast than it is to fix a shot with too much contrast. Now, you’ve probably gotten used to shooting RAW which is incredibly flexible. But when you shoot video, it’s pretty much back to the days of shooting JPEG all over again.


Things to adjust:

  • Auto Tone
  • Levels
  • Shadows & Highlights
  • Vibrancy
  • White Balance

The Metropolitan Museum of Art Banned Selfie Sticks


The Metropolitan Museum of Art is banning selfie-sticks. So, if you’re hoping to Instagram yourself standing in the Temple of Dendur, you may be out of luck.

The Met is one of many museums discouraging use of the selfie-stick on the grounds that it could be dangerous to other visitors and to the artwork itself, although signs explicitly banning them have not yet been posted, the New York Timesreports.

MoMA has also banned the selfie-stick, along with the National Gallery of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. Museum officials told the Times they were concerned that waving selfie sticks around could hit other visitors or damage delicate artwork.

Selfie sticks are still permitted at the Lourve in Paris as well as the Tate Modern and National Gallery in London—for now.

I went from not having reviewed a camera in ages to having done two in a row.

In my last post, I waxed romantically about how I no longer care about gear so much. I talked about the real limitations we face–creative limitations, not those imposed by what camera we use–and how familiarity with a camera can yield great results. I also said I don’t take pictures of cameras anymore; I just don’t see the point. There is no longer a steady stream of cameras and lenses in and out of my life, and the U.S. Postal Service is surely feeling the ramifications.

However, I have to say that there have been a few pieces of gear that I have enjoyed more than others. The Fuji X100 and X100s have been a revelation for me; the original X100 unlocked so much that I had not yet discovered about photography. The Leica…
